20 products

Handcrafted Stained Glass, Recycled Glass, & Beaded Jewelry.

Monica van der Mars is a Missoula based artist who has been creating and selling handcrafted jewelry since graduating from the University of Montana with a degree in Fine Arts in 1987. 

Raised in the Netherlands to a Swedish mother and Dutch father, she sold her first pair of beaded earrings at a street market in Amsterdam at age 12. She has enjoyed creating and selling her work ever since. 

 


 

Monica’s jewelry consists of stained and recycled glass pieces that are combined with a variety of beads. The stained and recycled glass pieces are wrapped in copper foil and soldered with lead-free solder.
The silver pieces have sterling silver earwires and silver-plated chains. The darker antique pieces, are made with the base metal called gunmetal.
"Great color combinations," is a compliment that she often hears from customers about her work. She enjoys providing her customers with beautiful objects that are also affordable.
Her work work is sold wholesale and retail at galleries and shows throughout the United States and at the Artists' Shop in downtown Missoula.

 


Note: only a small portfolio of Monica’s jewelry is available on this online store.
